Family Photoshoot in Worthing with two Basset Hounds!

Earlier in the year I was approached by my friend Basset Hound loving friend Lisa, to see if I would donate a raffle prize to a charity fundraiser day she was hosting in aid of the BRNGB (Basset Rescue Network of Great Britain). Being a lover of dogs, I didn’t need even a second to think about it and almost bit her hand of to get my donation in!

A couple of months later, I got to meet up with Sally & Damon, the lovely winners of the prize. We’d been in touch prior to the shoot and discussed their hopes for the day. Damon is a keen amateur photographer so they have loads of pictures of their two Bassets, Buddy & Peach. What they don’t really have is many pictures of the 4 of them together, or many pictures of Damon with the dogs as he’s usually the one snapping away – so my aim for the session was to get as many of these as I could.

In my usual style, the shoot was very natural and relaxed, we met near their home down in Goring and spent an hour and a half down at the beach. We did a few different set ups and moved around in order to get a variety of ‘scenes’ and backdrops. Buddy was very vocal throughout the session which did nothing but make me laugh!

It turned out, after chatting with Sally, that she had a really interesting ‘story’ herself. She was made redundant 5 years ago from her job in the corporate IT world and decided to make a career change and pursue her dream of working with dogs. She started a business walking dogs and then trained as a groomer and now runs her wonderful full-service ‘Furry DogMother‘ business, a very successful venture and having got to know her a little better, I can totally see why.

After editing their images, I went to visit the 4 of them at home on Saturday and we had a great time looking through all the pictures and deciding which ones they wanted as a keepsake of their day. I feel honoured to have met the Cooper clan and was delighted with their reactions to the photos. I look forward to seeing them all again soon!
